Road to Heritance Tea Factory

Hi there,

We will visit this hotel as part of a tour next week and received a letter from our travel agent that the road was closed for repair and we would access using an alternative route. Does anyone know what this is like and if we should prepare for a longer (or bumpier) journey!

Thanks!

Hi there,

Normal road would take 30-45 mins from Eliya, alternate maybe half an hour longer at most. Believe me, it can't be worse and more bumpy than the normal road (that's why they finally planned repairs, after more damage due to yearly flooding)...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

Thanks - doesn't sound too bad then! We were prepared for the state of this road from other posts.

Is the road from here back to Colombo airport in an okay state of repair?

Yes, lots better. The detour Eliya-Kandy-Airport is the best due to the Eliya-Kandy part being excellent for Lankan standards. But the more direct route, Eliya-Hatton-Avissawella-Airport, is also good enough.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
